After fantastic three days in Chennai, balloon festival moves to the land of coconuts – Pollachi!
For those who missed this edition in Chennai here’s another superb opportunity & this time with a generous dose of camping added to the extravaganza.
As the Pongal looms large, get ready to spend the first long weekend of the year village styled!
Yes! Camp in a beautiful coconut farm, bathe in pump sets & rivers, explore the country side of pollachi, fill your tummies with fresh Pollachi tender coconut water straight off the trees & treat your tastebuds to TN village cuisine.
If you think the fun ends there wait on! Get an up-close experience of The Hot Air Balloon Festival, be a part of the balloon crew, prepare balloons for the flight & indulge in an exciting balloon chase. For dummies, hot air balloons have no steering & once they are on a free fly it’s anyone’s guess where they would land and campers from Exoticamp will join the crew on a mad balloon chase 🙂 Sounds fun? (For more info on the Balloon Festival visit: http://www.tnibf.com/)
Okay wait!! We’ll take this up a couple more notches. You can also fly in these giant beauties. A tethered fly costs you Rs. 1000/person & a free fly (the ones without steering 😂) for a duration of 35-90 mins cost Rs.15,000. As an Exoticamper you get a whopping discount of Rs.5,000 on free fly which otherwise costs Rs.20,000!!!
The camp otherwise would have all Exoticamp elements – A super funny campfire session, a surprise visit to a falls (if time permits) & lots of friendly banter.
If you are someone looking for an offbeat weekend trip for Pongal or someone who still hasn’t got bus / train tickets to your hometown or someone disowned by your family 😉 for excessive travelling or someone from another state & three days leave is too short a time for a hometown hopp, this is your chance!
